Here is a bit more information about the 3 diseases that the Tdap vaccine works to prevent:
Otherwise known as lockjaw, tetanus is relatively rare in the US. This infection is highly painful, and leads to severe muscle tightening which can cause paralysis of the throat and limbs.
Diptheria is also rarely diagnosed in the US, but can cause serious symptoms. A rough coating forms in the back of the throat with this infection, which leads to breathing problems and eventually, death.
Pertussis, or whooping cough, is one of the more common infections found in the US. Symptoms include severe coughing, which leads to a hard time breathing. Whooping cough is extremely contagious as well.
